We keep inching ever closer to getting information about more broadscale testing for NCSoft's upcoming MMORPG Throne and Liberty. While full details will have to wait until another day, NCSoft did announce that the final internal test is now accepting applications if you would like to try and get your hands on the game... even if it is only for 5 hours and is in-person in South Korea.
From January 26th until February 12th, you can visit the official sign up page for Throne and Liberty's final internal test and take your shot at not only trying out the game, but also getting a fre RTX 3060 for your time.
The test will kick off on February 21 and 22 but will only last for about 5 hours each day and you have to either live in or be able to travel to NCSoft's R&D Center in South Korea to take part. Bring your mask as COVID safety protocols will be in full force, and no, NCSoft won't be footing the bill for your travels so it's unlikely we'll see anyone from our side of the pond be selected for this test phase.
While we tried and you CAN apply on the site as a western gamer using your PlayNC account, you will need to supply a phone number and in most cases your western number isn't going to be "valid" according to the sign up form.
This test gives testers a chance to look at questing, raids, in-game world events, and more, so we can at the very least expect some footage coming from the team when testing kicks off, but don't expect any from the testers themselves as phones will be restricted to certain areas of the building to ensure no footage escapes.
With the console and PC global release previously slated for the "first half 2023" we can't be all that far from really getting our hands on the game, so here's to hoping all goes well and the test (or the launch!) don't see any delays.
Special shout out to MMOBomber Sarumonin for the tip and the translation assistance! You rock!
